The two-level, underground station has an island platform and four exits. The washrooms are outside the entrance area.

HistoryEdit

Originally, two separate stations were planned: one to serve National Taiwan University and the other (to be named Gongguan station) at the junction of Roosevelt Road and Keelung Road. The two stations were later combined as one and moved to the present position where it began operation on 11 November 1999.[3][4]

Another accessibility elevator is opened at exit 2 to serve the National Taiwan University community.[5] It was completed after a year of construction on 16 June 2010.
